133 mins - United Kingdom 2024 - Documentary 

Director: David Hinton 

Narrator: Martin Scorsese 

Martin Scorsese first encountered the films of Powell and Pressburger when he was a child, sitting in front of the family TV. When their famous logo came up on screen, Scorsese says, “You knew you were in for fantasy, wonder, magic - real film magic.” 

Now, in this documentary, he tells the story of his lifelong love-affair with their movies, including THE RED SHOES, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP, BLACK NARCISSUS and THE TALES OF HOFFMANN. 

“Certain films you simply run all the time and you live with them,” Scorsese says. “As you grow older they grow deeper. I’m not sure how it happens, but it does. For me, that body of work is a wondrous presence, a constant source of energy, and a reminder of what life and art are all about.”

Drawing on a rich array of archive material, Scorsese explores in full the collaboration between the Englishman Powell and the Hungarian Pressburger - two romantics and idealists, who thrived in the face of adversity during World War
